Early Wednesday morning, [artist id="1043"]Busta Rhymes[/artist] was absolutely basking in an afterglow at 2:10 a.m. in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. Busta had just performed with Rick Ross, Fabolous, Red Café and [artist id="1244169"]Puff Daddy[/artist] at the Lab nightclub — the collective, wearing T-shirts that read “Invisible Bully,” took to the stage to honor the 13th anniversary of the death of Notorious B.I.G.
“Brooklyn is so thorough,” Busta yelled in the parking lot. “We seeing U-Haul trucks, we smelling jerk chicken — Brooklyn’s reppin’, homie.”
Busta brought the ruckus with his chorus on “Victory.” There was no way Rhymes would have missed saluting his close friend, Biggie.
“God bless Ms. Wallace and thank you so much Ms. Wallace for giving us such greatness. As far as existence is concerned … Big was greatness as far as existence was concerned,” he said. “When I’m sitting in the venue, we sippin’ on all type of things and we watching and really being able to appreciate how every single song … you know how people got their favorites. It’s one thing for people to sing their favorites, but it’s another when everybody sings the entire catalog. Special homie!”
Buss said the night was just about perfect — however, one person was missing.
“The one thing I definitely feel a little funny about is that the homie Lil Wayne had to go in and the timing was so close to a moment. Not only did he tear it down at Madison Square Garden , I wish he had a couple of more days to be able to come and tear it down for us honoring the legacy of the late great B.I. I’m sure Weezy would have came through and repped with everybody that came through tonight. With that being said, I hope the homie holds his head, do his little stint, 85 percent of his stint, and comes home safe in one piece. Because you really can’t cage genius. During 14th anniversary, we wanna see Weezy over here showing love to the late great B.I. Big up to the whole Young Money. Shout-out to the whole Cash Money.”
